Do you have two copies of the same game, old games or consoles that sleep in a closet? Why not donate it to the Laboratory and contribute to Science? We will take good care of it and you will help to preserve our gaming heritage. Do as our many donors and get in touch here.

LUDOV is commited to take the best possible care of donated materials

>Perennial accessibility: videogames given to LUDOV are integrated within the permanent collection and made accessible to students registered in one of our game studies program. The lab’s stations provide an ideal context to play on all consoles and the most common operating systems. These platforms are maintained so as to guarantee long term accessibility. Lab managers might also consider emulation when material fragility complicates firsthand accessibility.

>Paratextual documents preservation: the lab provides storage for various types of print or digital documents pertaining to the game development process (preliminary sketches, design documents, etc.) Company / project archives are preserved in a secure environment and will only be consulted by registered students who make a special request.

>Gameplay preservation: LUDOV is committed to provide second hand accessibility to future historians thanks to gameplay archives. The lab is currently developing audiovisual archiving protocols (video capture of the screen and of players) in order to highlight a diversity of relevant players and play styles for selected games.
